Microsoft Introduces Edge Browser To Android and iOS

Microsoft is finally bringing its popular Edge browser to iOS and Android platform. Edge browser initially available as a preview on both Android and iOS device but will be bringing features like Favorites, Reading List, New Tab Page and Reading View across PC and phone. The feature will make it easier to find, view and manage content on-the-go, without disrupting the flow.

Microsoft will be releasing Edge in Apple’s TestFlight program today, alongside Google’s own testing through the Play Store soon. Currently Microsoft is primarily targeting this initial preview version at iPhone and Android users, so there’s no tablet support yet. What this means is that, pen highlighting features available on desktop mode is not  supported. Also missing is Cortana support.

Highlights of Microsoft Edge for Android and iOS

  • From PC to mobile,  browse seamlessly across your devices, while your information syncs in the background.
  • Go anywhere and pick up where you left off by easily moving content between your mobile device and your Windows 10 PC.
  • Passwords and favorites are synced across your devices so your browser is always personalized to you.
  • Hub View makes it easy to find and manage your content like favorites, reading list, history and books all in one place.
  • Reading View allows you to reorganize the content on a webpage to make it easier to focus on what you’re reading.
  • Find, view, and share content effortlessly with a built-in QR Code Reader to pull up information at a touch of a button, Voice Search to use the web in more familiar ways, and InPrivate mode to keep your browsing data private.

One cheerful news is that there are options to choice from all the major browsers like Google, Yahoo and Bing search.
